The zyBooks Approach

Less text doesn’t mean less learning.

Studying data structures and algorithms often represents a person’s first study of the “science” of computing, beyond just programming. Mastery of these concepts is part of the foundation of the discipline of computing, leading to computing professionals as distinct from programmers.

Data structures is an extremely visual subject, forming an excellent match for the extensive use of animations that typifies a zyBook. Embedded learning questions help the reader understand and remember concepts.

The content is maximally modular to enable configuration by instructors. Instructors can rearrange sections, set sections as optional, add instructor’s notes to sections, and more. This zyBook can also be mixed-and-matched with others, such as with the Programming in C++ zyBook; contact sales@zybooks.com for information.
